Regular expressions in Python Task 5 of 5
Hey guys...need help, don't know what's wrong here...I am getting "task 1 no longer passing"
import re with open("basics.txt") as open_file: file_object = open_file data = file_object.read() file_object.close() first = re.match(r'Four', data) print(first) file_object =r.search(liberty)
import re file_object = open('basics.txt') data = file_object.read() file_object.close() first = re.match(r'Four', data) liberty = re.search(r'Liberty', data)
Your last line just doesn't make much sense:
There is no variable defined with the name
r. Also there is no variable
I am assuming that you are trying to search for the string "liberty" in the data you've just read from the file. in which case you may want to do something like:
file_object = re.search(r"liberty", data)
NOTE: I would rename the
file_object variable to something else since the
re.search function returns a reg-ex match object (not a file handler).
Hope this helps.
